Mormons are Killing the Boy Scouts


Percentage of Boy Scouts who are Mormon, compared to 2 percent of the American population. Mormons, who also largely bankrolled the reversal of same-sex marriage in California, are taking over the Boy Scouts even as the group’s numbers have shrunk in the face of anti-gay activism by the group. In the 1970s, the Boy Scouts had 4.8 million members; today the figure is 2.7 million.

    So because Mormons are virulently anti-gay, that means they’re responsible for the shrinking percentages of people who are Boy Scouts? I’m afraid that doesn’t quite compute.
